Spotlight: Children’s Author Chelan Ku!

Please welcome Chelan Ku to my blog:

Chelan is my first children’s author who I am privileged and excited to be spotlighting today.

Lets find out about Chelan:

Chelan Ku grew up in the Pacific Northwest, an area well known for its rainy weather. She quickly took to reading and writing her own stories and as a child would often hand out stories as gifts to everyone she met. Her love of the written word only grew as she aged, and she soon found herself with a deep desire to reach others with her words.



Chelan Ku’s love of the written word helped her develop a lifelong love of learning and teaching. Throughout her adult life, she learned basic coding, art and illustration skills, how to knit, sew, crochet, cook, bake, and how to minister to children and moms at her local church.

After becoming a mom to three children, Chelan Ku started to notice little lessons that she still needed to learn. These reminders would come to her while she played with her children, read to her children, and especially when she taught her children during the Covid-19 pandemic shut down. She tucked these moments of inspiration away for another day.

One day, when Chelan was dealing with some of life’s rainy weather, she set aside some time to write again and as she wrote she discovered she was encountering all those lessons she hadn’t yet fully learned. From the inspiration she had gained over the years, stories started to pour out onto the page and behind each of them something that she had yet to fully grasp. Lessons like don’t let worry get in your way; don’t ever give up your power to choose; believe in yourself; and you can’t be perfect, but you can always do better. These are the lessons she presented to herself through the words and illustrations in her children’s picture books and the stories that she now presents to the world.

What a beautiful bio, Chelan ?

Little Puddle Jumper loves the rain, but will grandma’s worries get in the way of Little Puddle Jumper’s rainy-day walk? No way! She’s got a coat. Rain just rolls off of her. Little Puddle Jumper finds peace, joy, and connection in life’s rainy weather.

Mr. Beau Jingles is a good boy who learns to do better. This book written and illustrated by Chelan Ku was inspired by her own dog Beau and includes a short story at the end all about the beginning of their adventures as well as a note from the author for every person who feels or has ever felt that they are just no good. Mr. Beau Jingles’ naughty behavior and understanding of how he is relating to others is sure to cause some groans and giggles from children and adults alike.

Jessica loves ice cream and trying new things, but when she is faced with over 100 flavours to choose from things get a little out of hand. Join Jessica in this silly cautionary tale about her first step inside the Ice Cream Eclectic.

Way to go Jessica. I love ice-cream, who doesn’t. Hard to choose which flavour is best though 🙂

 Chelan is not only an author of several children’s books, she is multi-talented as you will discover as you read on…


Here is Chelan at one of the schools she has visited. Contact her if you are interested as she loves children, visiting, reading to children and giving talks.

Chelan lives in the Greater Seattle Area and has kindly provided us with a photo which looks rather beautiful.

This artwork provided by Chelan is absolutely gorgeous.


I can see why Chelan offered this sweet photo of her dog Beau, as a puppy, so sweet captured licking his lips! So I had to share.

So readers here are a few wonderful words from one of Chelan’s books:

Mr. Beau Jingles Is A Good Boy
